Pencil Cup (In which I make a mistake!)

November 28, 2010

A simple but functional little basket. I included some dyed reed in this one to add a little color accent.

Round baskets look like a sunshine when you start them. As you can see, they also naturally have a sold bottom.



The weaving on this one was pretty standard. I chose to make the rim with a thick, half-round piece of reed, and was not happy with the result: (oops!)

The edges of the rim would not lay flat at the overlap. So I took it off and re-lashed the rim with a flat piece of reed!

Final product after the jump!
